He had it coming, he had it coming
He only had himself to blame
If youd have been there, if youd have seen it
[Santana Lopez]
I betcha you would have done the same

You know how people have these little habits
That get you down like Bernie
Bernie, he likes to chew gum, no, not chew, Pop!
So I came home this one day and Im really irritated and Im looking for a lil bit of sympathy
And theres Bernie lyin on the couch, drinkin a beer and chewin
No, not chewin, poppin
So, I said to him, I said
You pop that gum one more time and he did
So I took the shotgun off the wall
And I fired two warning shots into his head
[Tina Cohen-Chang, Santana Lopez, Sugar Motta, Brittany S. Pierce]
He had it coming, he had it coming
He only had himself to blame
If youd have been there, if youd have heard it
I betcha you would have done the same
[Sugar Motta]
I met Ezekiel Young from Salt Lake City about two years ago
And he told me he was single and we hit it off right away
So, we started living together
Hed go to work, hed come home, Id fix him a drink, and wed have dinner.
And then I found out,
Single, he told me
Single, my butt!
Not only was he married, oh no, he had six wives
One of those Mormons, you know
So that night, when he came home from work
I fixed him his drink as usual
You know, some guys just cant hold their arsenic
[Tina Cohen-Chang, Santana Lopez, Sugar Motta, Brittany S. Pierce]
He had it coming, he had it coming
He took a flower in its prime
And then he used it and he abused it
It was a murder but not a crime
[Santana Lopez]
Now, Im standing in the kitchen
Carvin up the chicken for dinner, mindin my own business
In storms my husband Wilbur in a jealous rage
You been doin the milkman
he says
He was crazy and he kept on screamin
You been doin the milkman
Then he ran into my knife
He ran into my knife ten times

The dirty bum
bum, bum, bum, bum
The dirty bum
bum, bum, bum, bum
They had it comin,
They had it comin
They had it comin,
They had it comin
They had it comin all along,
They had it coming all along.
Cause if they used us,
Cause if they used us,
and they abused us,
And they abused us.
How could they tell us that we were wrong?
Could you tell us that we were wrong?
